NS8000 broke near the handle..
I had this racquet for more than 2 and half years now and when I acquired it, it wasnt long after it came out and I traded an At800de for it with someone on the forum. The initial conditions were pretty good and it has always been my favorite and most used racquet. I am not even sure if it hit the bird or not. After I execute a smash, the racquet felt lighter and everyone was stunned. The top piece flew over 20 meters onto an empty court and luckily nobody was hurt.
On the way home, I thought it might be caused by the poor quality of CH coded racquets but when I unwrapped the grip to check the country code, it turned out to be CD coded. I guess I just always thought it was CH and never really checked.

The racket is 2.5 yrs old and was used (traded with others) to begin with. Also, racket is not made to be bullet proof, therefore, years of usage or storage condition and mis-usage (i.e. clash, hitting the floor, etc) can all contribute to the damage.

And even if it is a fake one, what would it care now? It's broken so you need to buy a new one, so check if it was a real one wouldn't make a difference to me

yea. It is an authentic ns8000. I was just really surprised by the location it broke off at. Despite of a lot of paint chips on the frame, it survived.
Things like this just make me appreciate having an identical backup racquet. 1 minute later, the game resumed.

Hmm, my NS900X is just over a year old and a "cracking" sound can be heard at the base of the shaft where it meets the handle. It has been steadily getting worse. I did hit the ground quite hard a few months ago so difficult to blame the racket . Does seem a bit fragile but I love the feel of it so will probably buy another.
